Hello Experts,

How do I change the SOA record on a Server 2012 R2 Core box in my DMZ with Powershell?

I tried doing this with the following dnscmd command:

Dnscmd dmzdns /recordadd mydomain.com . SOA ns1.mydomain.com dns-admin.mydomain.com

2012 R2 comes with DNS CmdLets you know? The syntax is slightly arcane.
Import-Module DnsServer

# Get the record and hold it in two variables (old and new)
$OldSOARecord = $NewSOARecord = Get-DnsServerResourceRecord -ZoneName mydomain.com -RRType SOA
# Set the new values on the New record
# Note that you must include the trailing "." in the string. Tells DNS not to append the origin.
$NewSOARecord.RecordData.PrimaryServer = "ns1.mydomain.com."
$NewSOARecord.ResponsiblePerson = "dns-admin.mydomain.com."
# Commit the changes, referencing the old record, the new record and repeating the domain name.
Set-DnsServerResourceRecord -NewInputObject $NewSOARecord -OldInputObject $OldSOARecord -Zone "mydomain.com"
